[edit] Location

In the woods near a lake fairly close to a logging road.

[edit] Plans

To continue from 2012-01-13 58 16 to this one and then onward to 2012-01-13 59 15. The westward drive was going to be on small roads towards Katrineholm.

I reached these 4 of my planned graticules.

[edit] Expedition

Turned back on 53 and drove 2 km to the road I was going to take. It was a fairly dodgy gravel road. And now came the Class 1 blizzard that SMHI (Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute) had warned about. But I have good studded tires so onwards. Then onto a bigger road to Katrineholm and onto the small road leading round Tisnaren, the lake.

This was very very winding, and for the first time I lost grip in my front tires in a very slow corner and started understeering a bit. Nothing serious though. That corner was very close to the lake, like 20 meters and the humid air had frozen over on the road surface. Found the logging road and turned into the woods. Reached the end of the line and started walking.

The sky was just all gray so my internal compass wasn't perfect. Therefore it was hard trying to find the perfect line towards the geohash. But up a tiny hill and I found it.

Took some pictures and made a nice xkcd with sticks. The loggers had sawed off tons of pine branches while thinning out the forest so there was ample a branch to choose from.

Headed back to car and ate some chocolate and soldiered on toward 2012-01-13 59 15.
